New Jersey Devils

The New Jersey Devils are back in action tonight against the Dallas Stars. They’ll hit the ice at 11:30 for what appears to be an optional morning skate.

Also, tempers flare among teammates in Detroit, Philly was unaware of an injury to a player they acquired, and Mackenzie Blackwood will miss his former goaltending partner.
